It was a packed house Monday as Dougherty County residents asked the Dougherty County Commission to formulate a noise ordinance.

They're asking for this to protect their areas from industrial noise they say the proposed Albany Compressor Station and pipeline will bring.

Officials say the 159 mile pipeline would run from Alabama, into Georgia, and end in Florida and residents say it will not only bring unwanted noise, it will also destroy land and pollute the water.

Sonja Andralliski, a mother of two children is concerned for her children's health.

"The fact that it's been proven that this compressor station can and will give off emissions that may cause cancer scares me, and there's no cure for cancer and so to bring something that will implement cancer and, it's scary."

The Dougherty County Commission is planning a meeting with local and county officials to take their ideas to Governor Nathan Deal in hopes that he will have the pipeline company re-route their plans.
